Vegetables are parts of plants that are consumed by humans as food as part of a meal. The original meaning is still commonly used and is applied to plants collectively to refer to all edible plant matter, including the flowers, fruits, stems, leaves, roots and seeds. The alternative definition of the term vegetable is applied somewhat arbitrarily, often by culinary and cultural tradition. It may exclude foods derived from some plants that are fruits, nuts and cereal grains, but includes fruits from others such as tomatoes and courgettes.

Vegetable products are certain parts of plants that are consumed by humans as food as part of a meal. Traditionally, the term vegetables included the flowers, fruits, stems, leaves, roots, bark and seeds of a plant. Now, however, these foods have been re-categorised into vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains. Vegetables can be cooked or eaten raw and play a very important role in human nutrition as they are mostly low in fat and carbohydrates but are high in vitamins, minerals and fibre. The recommended daily allowance is 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Some examples of vegetables are: carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, potatoes, onions, broccoli and sweetcorn.
